Very fair and nice professor. Teaches a hard topic very well. Tests are very very tricky but she gives a huge curve.

While she is a very nice person, clarity is not a strong-suit. She will answer any question in class, but she makes a lot of mistakes in an unorganized fashion. Tests are on the basic material with a bit tricky wording.

STAT 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

She is very nice and very helpful. she does talk very fast and covers a lot of material but as long as you pay attention in class you're fine. tests are very straight forward and she curves them a lot so not a lot to worry about. she also gives extra credit and is very fair and gives lots of partial credit.

STAT1111 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Does a great job teaching a difficult subject. I think people focus on how hard the subject is and they think shes a hard teacher. true tests are not easy but they are straightforward. if you look at the comments, even those who gave a bad rating said shes very nice and helpful. pay attention youll be fine. mandatory attendance but she doesnt care

STB1101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

BEWARE!!! Taming a wild lion would be easier than taking this class.She can actually be very accomodating,as she stops after several sections,and asks does everyone understand this? However, when she is met with 24 or 25 "No's",she pushes onward,as if the entire world relies on her finishing that day's material in the alotted collegiate hour.

Really great teacher. She does speak fast, but if you are able to accustom yourself to the way she teaches you can learn a lot. She is a fair grader and a very fair and decent individual. She conveys the information you need to know to do well. Really great teacher in my opinion and she can really help you outside of the class as well.

Tough Tough Grader. Moves far too quickly and is far too quick to give bad grades and not help the students.

Professor Zakheim's lectures are straight forward, material is presented in a clear form. Although the tests are quite tough and you've got to practice and read the book for them.

STAY AWAY!! Unless of course you can write 450 words a second, then this course is perfect for you. She will do her best to make her tests extremely different from other section's- G-d forbid a question or two overlaps. That said, tests are a massacre. She's not shy when it comes to giving bad grades, so beware.
